, how do you assess the? >> let me just say first, i made a pretty good living and politics are betting against conventional wisdom and i think that it's a general principle of mind that the conventional wisdom is always wrong. and it was wrong here are it was wrong here because what we often do in political circles, in journalism, is we look at what happened at the last election, or past elections come and we think that's prescriptive for what's going to happen in the future. it's a much more dynamic process than that. and the assumption was well, no president has ever been elected under franklin roosevelt with unemployment-7.2%. but no president other than franklin roosevelt has ever inherited a situation such as dire as barack obama walked into. the american under -- the american people understood it. we did probably four or 500 focus groups during the course of the last few years. >> four or 500? >> that's against. it's probably wrong. now that i think about it, but -- >> but a lot. >> certainly several hundred focus groups. and next time we meet i will have the exact number. but we

." is there a problem over in the house? you bet there is, to the point where one departing house republican member has compared the speaker of the house to the manager of an asylum. and the speaker's house republican colleagues to the asylum inmates. that's pretty strong criticism from within the republican party. so the reason i give this speech is to try to be precise about what the problem is that has driven congress's approval into the cellar, and what exactly is that problem? well, i think that the house votes on the so-called fiscal cliff bill and on the emergency hurricane sandy aid illustrate what the problem is. those bills passed the house for one reason and one reason only: the speaker of the house of representatives waived what's called the hastert rule. what's the hastert rule? the hastert rule is probably the most significant contributor to dysfunction in washington right now. it's not even really a rule. it's a policy, a political policy of republican speakers that began under former republican speaker hastert. hence its common name as the hastert rule. and the rule is that the speaker
